Old Fashioned Bread Stuffing

This recipe is one that was handed down from my grandmother to me, and it is for an Old Fashioned Bread Stuffing, which is a must for any holiday menu.  Typically, I make this recipe without any meat, this year I decided to get a little crazy by adding sausage.  It was good but not necessary.  The recipe I included for Old Fashioned Bread Stuffing does not have the sausage added.


We are sharing Thanksgiving side dishes this week over at the Back Burner.  Side dishes are my favorite part of the holiday meal, and I cannot wait to see what the team is bringing to the table.

I decided to share one of my favorite side dishes, the stuffing.  I love a big plate of ultra moist and slightly crunchy stuffing, drizzled with turkey gravy.  I could eat just that.  Really!  From the first time I ever cooked Thanksgiving, I have made the same recipe that all the women on my mother’s side of the family has made.  The only difference is that I have added sausage to the mix this year;  normally I leave it out.  Slightly spicy Italian sausage made with local pork.  f you are a non-meat lover, just leave out the sausage and toss in lots of wild mushrooms.  Sound good?  I knew you’d love it!

*  if you want to add sausage, precook your favorite kind, then let it cool before mixing in with the bread.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Wow this sounds delicious. Saw you on Kitchen Daily Curator Network and stopped by to say hi as well :) Archana

  4. Looks delicious! How much sausage would you add to this recipe (if you’re a sausage-eater)? :)

  5. I would add about a pound of my favorite sausage. I would remove the casings and precook slightly until crumbly, then add to the mix. Have made with sausage and it is wonderful.


  1. […]  I don’t stuff my birds.  Why?  It dries them out, that delicious stuffing sucks up all of the juices and dries out the bird.  Instead, I bake it in a baking dish and serve […]
